CLAY MCLEOD CHAPMAN AND ANDREA MUTTI CONJURE THE NEW HORROR SERIES “SÉANCE IN THE ASYLUM”: "We’re receiving a message from the beyond! Dark Horse Comics presents Séance in the Asylum, a new historical horror series from renowned writer Clay McLeod Chapman (What Kind of MotherGhost Eaters) and artist Andrea Mutti (The British Paranormal Society: Time Out of MindHaunt You to the End) that will have you questioning what’s real and what’s not. Chapman will write the series and Mutti will illustrate, with Trevor Henderson, Francesco Francavilla, Lukas Ketner, and Jenna Cha rounding out the circle and providing variant cover art on issues #1-4.

“Years back, I uncovered an esoteric text -- The Homeopathic Principle Applied to Insanity: A Proposal to Treat Lunacy by Spiritualism by Dr. James John Garth Wilkinson -- written all the way back in 1857, and I knew within my bones, my blood, that this was destined to be a story,” said Chapman. “As a lifelong acolyte of the Fox Sisters, I've always been obsessed with stories about tapping into the hereafter. Now it's an honor to usher you through the veil and explore the other side... “

1865. Defrauded spiritual medium Alicia Wilkinson is brought to The Ashcroft Hospital at the behest of Dr. John James Templeton. He offers Alicia a second chance to revive her once-thriving career: perform a séance amongst the patients in order to draw out their mental maladies. Alicia performs her first series of séances with the patients—including traumatized soldiers returning from the Civil War and women whose sanity has slipped through their fingers—only to realize their sessions might work all too well. What no one knows is Alicia is a fake. A liar. A cheat… So why are the patients suddenly acting possessed?

It takes some time to summon the spirits, so Séance in the Asylum #1 (of 4) will relay its message in all comic shops on July 24, 2024. It is now available to pre-order from your local comic shop for $3.99."


THE NEW FLESH PARTY: "Time to get weird at The New Flesh Party, a film screening and music event where body horror meets dance at Digital Gym Cinema in East Village, San Diego on May 4th.

This unique event will kick off at 5pm with a screening of David Cronenberg's iconic masterpiece VIDEODROME, setting the tone for an evening where television is reality, and reality is less than television.

After the screening, the dance party will start in the lobby with acid house, disco and dark wave beats with an opening set by Eric Leonardis and a headlining set by the legendary DJ Mark E. Quark, with dancers provided by the legendary Les Girls Theater. We will also have some cool photo opps for you!

We call on film aficionados, body horror fanatics, and dance music enthusiasts to celebrate the bizarre and the uncanny with us in the theater and on the dance floor!"

"Putting together this list of my recommended ARROW favourites has been a bloody delight…. but also presented me with a massive dilemma. I haven’t felt such indecision to pick since the heady and good old ‘nasty’ days of browsing lurid VHS video covers In a proper independent video shop! And now I find myself back in a beautifully arcane store with a superlative horror and cult film section…how the hell do I pick favourites out of a selection this great?

So, after hours of browsing the endless treats on offer, I’ve somehow managed to boil it down. So if you also aren’t quite sure what to pick, then here’s my cross-section recommendations of stone-cold classics; video nasty gorey mayhem: retro thrills and some bizarre mind-expanding cult delights that range from brutal to hilarious, and classy to trashy. I love ‘em all! So if you’re looking for guidance or just want to take a chance you really can’t go wrong with any of these..."
